Salvation Road by D.W. Gregory to return to NYU

NYU Educational Theatre's Fall production will be Salvation Road by D.W. Gregory; directed by David Montgomery, PhD.

Salvation Road was recently presented during the 2012 New Plays for Young Audiences Series at the Provincetown Playhouse and will return to the NYU Program in Educational Theatre this fall with performances on October 25-28 and November 1-4.

About the play:
When his hip older sister disappears with members of a fundamentalist church, 17-year-old Cliff Kozak struggles to hold it all together, pretending that he isn't hurt by her decision to cut him out of her life. But a year later, a chance sighting of Denise at a New Jersey strip mall leads Cliff and his best buddy on a road trip into the heart of a deepening mystery. How could a smart and talented girl fall for the hollow promises of a sleazy preacher? Could it be that blind faith is just another term for a desperate need to belong?
